message Hi Mrk,
I like to carry a minimum of stuff so I don't have a external strobe but I'm using a small hand LED torch light : it's much better to use an extra light that you can put in any position insteed of using the internal strobe of the camera.
P.S : be careful if you want to buy a LED torch light, chose one without white spot in the centre of the spot. The power of the light of the torche must be the same all around the spot. Most of those torches have greater intensity in the center and it overlight the center of the pictures.
For the setting macro... well nothing special, macro mode, automatic focus, slightly underexposure... and to get it closer...re-scaled with pohotshop...
Best regards
Patrick

message Thank you very much.

Great information.

It is refreshing to see great images being taken without the super expensive rigs like some photographers use.


Regards
